Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge and Upper Delaware River. Escape the urban bustle at Swartswood State Park and Green Chimneys Farm & Wildlife Center. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), The Celery Farm (in Allendale) and William Floyd Estate (in Mastic Beach). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Pocono Environmental Education Center, do a tasting at Franklin Hill Vineyards, experience rural life at Soons Orchards & Farm Market, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.

To find traveler tips, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planner.
